I have wooden floor in my lounge and dining room, I intend to sand and
re-varnish the floor (oak)and do away with carpets. It's in good
condition having been well protected by carpet.
With the recent rise in fuel bills I know I need to insulating
underneath. It's a 30's semi & I know there is a 2.5-3' crawl space
beneath and I'm OK with cutting a hole to get access and creating a
hatch. Whilst I'm down there I need to do some repair work as the floor
has become a bit bouncy in a couple of places. I'm assuming some
packing between the brick supports and one or two of the joists has
slipped rather than something more serious.
I was looking at something light and easy to handle such as;
http://tinyurl.com/mvj33 . Looking at the dimensions (1050mm wide) this
would have to be slung under the joist and tacked into place leaving a
gap of 6' between the floor and insulation.
Am I right and will this be effective? Does anyone have any better
Thanks in advance.
